Ephemera and other material collected by the LSE Library which relates to elections in the United Kingdom. As of December 2021, the collection consists of candidate manifestos and voter guides from the London Mayor Elections in 2016 and 2021, but will potentially include born-digital or digitised ephemera from UK General Elections.
As part of our 125th anniversary celebrations in the 2020/21 academic year, we asked the LSE community to get in touch and share their photos and memories. Students, alumni and LSE staff members were all invited to make a permanent contribution to the history of the School, for our Digital Library. This collection spans multiple decades and features photographs from our community, showcasing personal milestones as well as important cultural moments at LSE.
Manifestos from candidates standing for election as Mayor of London. Also includes booklets sent to all registered electors providing a guide to voting in the Mayor of London and the London Assembly Elections. Material is from the 2016 and 2021 elections.
